The Tale of Miss Beatrix Potter | One-Act Musical

Great for Virtual Performance | Virtual Production Consultation Available

The Tale of Miss Beatrix Potter
Book & Lyrics by Thera Langham Knapp | Music by Hestia September

The Tale of Miss Beatrix Potter tells the story of one of the world’s most beloved children’s authors and how her books came to be. It is a musical full of whimsy which travels between reality and the fantasy world Beatrix created. Throughout the musical, we meet Annie Moore’s family who inspired Potter’s creations, as well as the curmudgeonly Farmer McGregor,  warm but firm Mother Bunny, a host of sparkling, witty rabbits, sparrows, and country critters, and finally, the publishers who foolishly rejected her and her first book.

Discover the story of a young, tenacious woman who wouldn’t take “No” for an answer, and created the most delightful animal characters in all of children’s literature – and learn that you can achieve ANYTHING if you have a good friend and you hold onto your dreams.
